I could swear my Immune system is just a system that has been overtaken by a devious, laughing hyena. I am now crazy allergic to vinyl gloves. Really? That's what people wear so they Don't have allergic reactions! Ohhhh Me. I wonder if I am the only one with all kinds of goofy allergies. Well I always wanted to be unique but now I just feel like I should call up Newt Gingrich and ask if he could shoot a little higher and attempt to send me to Mars. I have this deep feeling that I belong there and it was meant to be.

OUCH! Have you reacted to any other vinyl? Like wearing shorts and sitting on the seat in your car? (Double ouch!) There is vinyl everywhere! I'm wondering (and I really have no idea) if those gloves have corn in them. I know the hard plastics do but maybe they're using it in soft plastic now too?

You are not the only one with goofy allergies -- although I call all mine intolerance as I have had multiple allergy tests over the years and am only allergic to dust.

This past year I developed reaction to laytex gloves -- now have to answer yes to that pesky question at every doc appt. Once health and healed I am going to try them again just to make sure it wasn't a one/well three off.

Try Nitrile gloves? If you still have reaction...are you wearing for long periods of time? I am still not certain that my latex glove reaction was not a heat reaction as I am severely intolerant of heat.

I noticed a few years ago that I was breaking out in a rash whenever I used latex gloves. Then I was got a job in a restaurant that used latex gloves and omg, it took about 2 seconds for me to be ripping that thing back off me! I thought I put my hand in a beehive. I keep the nitrile ones at home myself for when I clean, I don't think I've ever tried vinyl but that sounds like a weird thing to have a reaction to.

If it makes you feel any better though I have those days. Suddenly I'll have a weird reaction or something will go wrong or whatever and I'll be like yup... only I could possibly be this screwed up. Then I laugh about it because if I don't I'd have to cry about it.

I have no idea either but it happened once before at another clients home. I remember they were the clear gloves. They had powder in them though so i figured that was why. These gloves today did not. It was the same thing. My hands feel like burning and itching and i happened to wipe my nose qith the bottom of the glove and my nose and lips are on fire. Never had a problem with car interiors so it beats me.

I will be sure to use the beautiful purple nitrile gloves from now on. Who cares if i look like Barney. I wore them for about ten minutes. There it goes I am not the only one defying science. We are getting enough for a small colony now.

You think that until you get back on this forum and talk to all these other people. Oh well we are special. Literally one in a million.

Yes. That is the only way I survive most definitely. I have had plenty frustrating moments...like the day i made hot sauce and that just washing my hands would do just fine. I couldnt wear my contacts for three days. Funny thing is that the recipe mentioned to only prepare in a well ventilated area but didnt mention the acid stays in your skin for a week. Oh the joys of being young and "homemade ignorant". Gonna go buy myself some nitrile gloves just to be safe if a client does not have any.

The purple gloves seem to fit better anyway. And don't think of them as Barney gloves. Think of them as orchid gloves. They really are pretty. :)

Yeah? I guess that is true. Idk maybe it is the fact that it just clashes with my navy uniform. Bright purple and deep navy...Eh?

I feel like I am falling apart..I was diagnosed w/ celiac disease almost 2 years ago and if anything everything else is falling apart..arthritis, bronchitis, asthma, etc..and now allergies are taking over my life. If I go outside I get lesions; In fact, I get them everywhere..Im wondering if its my laundry soap, shampoo, etc..I have heard people say if you dont ingest it, it wont hurt..Im very careful to eat gluton free, but no matter what I do, my body looks like I have measles. Now I hear corn contains gluton, as well as rice..so now Im trying that..drives me nuts!

Honey, I went through the same confusion. Just to help you understand, sometimes the word "gluten" is used as a broad term to refer to any kind of grain protein. Celiacs do not react to these other proteins like maize or proteins in rice unless they have a leaky gut that caused other allergies. Anyway celiacs react to gliadin. Only in wheat, rye, and barley, and things derived from them often times. Yes, all of your products should be gluten free. Many on here react to gluten when it passes through their nasal passages and then is ultimately swallowed. You can sometimes also have a regular allergy to gluten too. Some people have skin reactions and so on.

Point is that uncontaminated rice and corn is completely safe unless you developed reactions to them because of proteins leaching into your bloodstream from your damaged gut. You can still be getting glutened from cross contamination or from, say your shampoo residue entering your mouth. It can take just a microscopic amount. Hand soaps should be checked. Absolutely everything. You can learn a lot on this forum. It may make you feel a little less hopeless if you share your frustrations and also browse and learn about what other problems you may be having.

Good luck!

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
